Panhandle People: Forty years of treating people right.

Posted: Updated:
Lynn Haven, Fla. -

Practicing the Golden Rule is something a Lynn Haven man has followed not only in life but in the business he's owned since 1973 as well.

 Julius "Doc" Smith has been running Doc's Tire Repair for 40 years and his reasoning for the success of his shop is simple. He says he treats customers like he treats himself and they just keep coming.

At an age when most people are slowing down a bit, the 74 year old insists on staying active and says that's the key to his longevity. Doc says he has no plans to retire anytime soon, but when that time comes he'll turn the business over to his sons Chris and Tim.
